This exciting Master of Business Management, specialised in Tourism & Travel, challenges students to study at a high academic standard, combining case studies and research.
What you will learn
The master programme is delivered in a block format, with 2 modules being covered every 6 weeks. Core module classes are inter-disciplinary - you study shared modules with master students from different business management specialisations. Due to the rolling entry (6 times a year) groups are dynamic, extremely international and diverse. The modules are delivered intensively over consecutive days in the so-called 'block format', which means that each module has 6 days of teaching split into two blocks of 3 days. Teaching methods include group work, case studies, presentations, and live projects. The course is delivered through a variety of approaches including lectures, presentations, tutorials and case studies, with an emphasis on interactive learning. Each module is taught by two lecturers, often a full time Wittenborg lecturer and a guest lecturer from a partner university. Modules include regular guest speakers from industry.
Who is the course for?

These skills are essential to almost every tourism related job in the world and are easily applied to careers that involve customer service and management. Classic jobs in the Tourism Industry include Travel Agency Managers, Travel Consultants, Destination Managers. Master of Management graduates can also expect to find employment in NGO’s, development agencies, but also in local, regional and national government organisations. Graduating from a highly international institute such as Wittenborg University, that places high emphasis on a combination of academic research and company and professional exposure means that the career prospects of graduates from the Master of Business Management, specialised in Tourism & Travel are multiple and global.
